    Amateur hockey officials are suspending two high school players for a fight during a championship game last month.

    Amateur hockey officials are suspending two high school players who fought during a championship game last month for two years and two and a half years.

    The brawl during the Amateur Hockey Silver Division championship game between Keller Hockey Varsity and Arlington Martin Warrior Varsity drew worldwide attention after video of it was posted on YouTube.

    The video, which has since been pulled from the video-sharing site, shows Keller player Braxton Mills blindsiding Arlington Martin's Jeff SoRelle.

    SoRelle sustained a broken jaw and a concussion.

    The Texas Amateur Hockey Association said Mills is suspended from all USA Hockey activities for two and a half years.

    SoRelle is suspended for two years.

    Both players can apply for reinstatement one year after the fight.

    The league is regulated by USA Hockey and is not sanctioned by the Arlington or Keller school districts or the University Interscholastic League.

    NBC DFW's Randy McIlwain contributed to this report.
